Letters to the Editor (Cont. on page 3) A Big Thank You to Our Pathways Volunteers! Ogden Valley Pathways thanks you, Gloria Froerer, for stepping up to organize the Trail Sweep and trash pickup, and for donating your wonderful skid loader. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you Bill Lindsay for getting the skid loader modified so it could work with the Forest Service’s Sweeper (thank you The deadline for the OVN June 15 issue is June 1. at Diamond Peak. Thanks to a lot of hard work, the trail looks great, and, more importantly, people are out using it. Thanks again. Jan Duffin, Huntsville Loss of Virtue Equates to Loss of Freedom Sixty years before Christ’s birth, great orator and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero watched plaintively as his republic faded before his eyes and Julius Caesar became the first Roman emperor (Dictator). As today, some felt betrayed by their leaders, but Cicero knew that the people themselves were ultimately responsible for Rome’s slide into empire, saying, “Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have . . . rejoiced in their loss of freedom . . . who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of . . . ‘more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.’ Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man.” One man can accomplish much, but only when aided by others. A leader is no more an island than is any citizen, and if he works ill, it’s only because of millions of enablers. Perhaps no one said it better than Edmund Burke: “Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.” That is, if men assume that freedom is license, if they assume that they can do whatever they want and abandon a freely accepted moral code in favor of the law of the jungle, the resulting moral anarchy will inevitably lead to the loss of freedom. Thus, if a people loses its virtue, it is doomed. It is beyond salvation by party, politician or prophet. To me, it is obvious to see the relationship between freedom and morality. Lonnie D. Crockett, Ph.D., Huntsville Snowcrest Has Great Track Season—Community support appreciated This year’s track season is over at Snowcrest Jr. High, and what a great season it was. School records in the 200, 400, 1600, and long jump were broken; and most of our athletes earned new P.R.’s (personal records) at each of our meets. Out of nine schools at the district meet, Snowcrest placed 4th overall for the girls, and 6th over all for the boys. Even though we had a challenging start in the beginning of the season—with snow, rain, snow, hail, snow, wind, and more snow—our students never quit. The athletes maintained a great attitude, even when our workouts involved snowshoe and cross country ski relays. We always found a way to get in a good workout and have fun at the same time. Congratulations to all the athletes, and thank you for all your hard work and your positive attitude. We’re already looking forward to next year. Regarding the track itself, it was great to run on this year, but we are still ironing out some issues. Cinders provide a cushioned surface on which to run, thereby limiting the shin splint problems and constant pounding that we endure when running on roads. Currently the track surface is a bit too soft, but with the help of some wonderful community members (Jeff Post of Post Paving and Brian Deeter of J.U.B Engineering), we are trying to resolve the lack of “binding” problem. Right now, running on the track is like running on the beach. It feels great on your legs, but isn’t good for speed work. Current studies indicate that the problem could be fixed by minimizing the depth of the cinders, and possibly adding another component to help the cinders bind. We appreciate everyone’s patience and hope to have the problems resolved in time for next season. Suggestions have been made to make the track rubber like they have at the high schools, but it’s currently cost prohibitive ($100,000 +). It the meantime, the track is available for anyone to use, and hope the community will take advantage of it. Thanks to everyone for their continued support of Snowcrest’s athletic programs. It’s great to be a Skyhawk! Bucks. The money received went towards keeping the school classroom. I would like to thank the Ogden Valley community for their help in supporting the Upper Elementary classroom at the Ogden Valley Montessori School for the 2008-2009 school year. Your support was enormous, helping to raise the necessary money to keep our classroom. We continue to look for any unwanted single-pane windows. The condition of the frame is not a concern; the window just needs to be single pane. These windows are turned into beautiful pieces of artwork by students of all ages from the Ogden Valley Montessori School and then sold as the window paintings. The money raised from these window paintings goes directly back into the school for teaching materials, classroom costs, staff training, conferences, and more. If you can help, please call 745-1122. Thank you.
